    YESSS!!! This be my favorite Starfleet design from the games! Great offensively, great defensively, and it's got great looks to boot. I EAGERLY await this release, and you can bet I'll be blowing it up to about 1:1000 scale. :mrgreen:

    Thank you for putting the impulse engine on the end of the hull! The original design would have fried the tail end with radiation. :wink: :thumb:

    I'm almost sure it's the forward cant of the shoulders and the backward sweep of the pylons, but the image makes the model look 'flat'. You mind posting an orthographic?

    I LOVE that texture! :thumb: Will you be doing other Chandley class ships? My ship was the Blackheart (NCC-2327) when I play the Starship Combat Simulator.

    That's what ahm talkin' 'bout. :cool:

    I can't wait for this one. Honestly if I need to I can just use Paint.NET for a new texture(though if you could turn off the layer with the name and registry it would help).

    Very odd design.

    I have those books still. Very hard if not difficult to find these days.

    Multiple copies

    I stumbled across my attic stash and found a buch of duplicate FASA books.


    Those were interesting designs, though I found the Romulan "Winged Defender" one of the best. Some of the adversay craft were excellent.

    I loved to pit the Winged Defender against the Chandley. It was much more interesting than any of the other "X vs. Chandley" scenarios I've run, because the ships are almost evenly matched.

    So how's the model coming along, nothing?
